Four Team Gift Sets

To go along with their 2008 base set, Topps produced six, limited edition 55 card team gift sets for some of the more marketable teams. Each 55 card set includes a card for each player on the entire 25-man roster, classic combos cards, 2007 highlights & team leaders cards, and a stadium card.

I was able to pick up the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, and New York Yankees for a great price. Nothing too exciting with the various highlights & leaders cards but the individual player cards are pretty cool because they feature a different picture than the regular issues.

The stadium card is by far my favorite. I'm planning on sending these off as TTM requests to an all-time great player from each team. I pretty much have the Red Sox and Dodgers decided but am looking for suggestions for the Mets and Yankees. Any ideas?


  1. Maybe Yogi Berra for the Yankees, Goose Gossage, Whitey Ford, Don Larsen they all charge but they would look nice

  2. You should be able to get Don Larsen for a pretty low price. Or if money is not a big deal, I would say Yogi Berra is the best choice!

    As for the Mets, there are a ton of players from their 1980's teams that sign for free but none are legendary. If you want a guarantee, try Gary Carter and pay the $20 or so he charges.

    Good Luck - I can't wait to see the results!

  3. Awesome! Thank you both. Leaning toward Whitey & Gary.
